Hi Lis, Very interested to read your profile as I work with a womens cooperative in India whose whole ethos is based on womens empowerment through sustainable enterprise. You can read all about our inspiring story at www.panchachuli.co.uk
I would also like to add you to my friends list on EFF
Hi Lis, great work. I agree completely about the empowerment of women through self-sustainability to achieve social benefits on a global scale. I dont acceopt donations of cash. I prefer supporters to purchase something Ive designed that links them to the recipients and generates greater interest.
This year Im running a series of 'Unity & Diversity' events in Scottish schools under the global education programme using fashion as the central element. Some of the outfits involved were designed by fashion undergraduates and along with a ready-to-wear range will be modelled by pupils. Not only fundraising but creating awareness and knowledge of different cultures through music art design food history and geography. I would like to see it rolled out across the northern hemisphere.
